They do seem to be fairly masterful at "I am not trapped here with you, you are trapped here with me..."

Yeah - Campus was on a not so great trajectory in the first half of the 80's.  There were a few good things happening here and there: a bump in basketball, Nichols was rebuilt, new Engineering building, architecture, ag and vet med were stable but not spectacular; but it all lacked any coherence.  Honestly, it was KU fumbling in-state student recruitment at this time in their Harvard of the Midwest quest as much as anything that kept enrollment falling even further.  They mostly ignored actively recruiting in-state students in favor of a larger regional out of state approach.  Wefald really was the right man in the right place at the right time.

...snip a bunch of stuff...

I don't think a single USN ship has ever had a modern anti-shipping missile fired at it and certainly the USN has never been in combat against drones controlled by an adversary.

Iranian/Chinese Silkworms may not be modern compared to a current gen Harpoon or Neptun, but they're plenty potent and ubiquitous in a lot of places:

Iran also regularly harasses shipping, particularly USN, with drones:

Sad news.   :cry:  Was he the one who had a mostly senior team at KSU and had a winning season?  :dunno:

Jim Dickey.  Convinced the senior class to redshirt. Parrish followed Dickey.

He’s like an insurance agent now or something

Apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

For real, his dad was a broker/had an agency.

Actually was meaning Brad, to be clear

I-64 across the southern part is just WTF.  You have St Louis,  :Carl:, Mt Vernon,  :Carl:, and then Evansville Indiana.  That's it.  Everything else is 10 miles off the exit.  And folks think I-70 is bad from Salina to Limon.  At least you can reasonably pick which side of 80mph :driving: you're most comfortable with.  I think Illinois finally raised I-64 to 70mph. Not too long ago was still 65 :impatient:

MisFitzermation alleges the Webs press conference went over like a fart in church inside the AD.

MisFitzermation alleges all good will is gone.

And that's it in a nutshell: His own lack of self awareness is his downfall.  Same with oscar.

I would have to think that, like with Trump after the election, there's been some high level assurance between military commands that a launch order would not be obeyed.

A single tactical nuke, different story perhaps, but EU/Nato, TRotW, and likely a lot of groups in Russia, have a lot of overwhelming conventional responses.

I wouldn't be too concerned about the ethics of his past personal decisions....With or without the transplant, guy probably only has 2 or 3 years left to live. Probably less with the transplant.  The anti-rejection regimen will be brutal.

I'm wondering if the dog in the cone of shame walking around in the LSU portion of that is going to be a premonition of how its going to work out.

If you don't I would highly recommend giving blood right now. Takes no time at all unless you pass out
Just did the Power Red donation yesterday. :billdance:

Do Power Red also...

Yeah, why would we want a program that has regularly been solid in football for the past decade+, when we could gain 5% of the Tennessee market instead? We already have west Texas and religious weirdos in DFW locked down. I don't even care about playing Houston, but it makes no sense to add schools that won't be fun to play while leaving Houston out. Either add fun schools (CSU, USU), or add money schools (BYU, Houston). Don't add Memphis over Houston, though. Makes no sense.

Miss me with this fun to play thing, that means absolutely nothing. When we added TCU they were coming off of a Rose Bowl ffs, what's more fun to play than that? They've been as insignificant to us a fans as a conference school can be and that's with an alum as a football coach.

As I said, I think Houston would be a great add, but not for the Big 12, we need new markets and recruiting territories, especially if the nu big 12 will attempt a television network. The Pac didn't add Colorado and Utah because they were fun. The SEC didn't add Mizzou and A&M because they were fun, those were middling programs when they were added. The Big 10 sure in the hell didn't add Maryland and Rutgers because they are fun, those were business decisions and damn good ones that were mocked at the time.

The differences in athletic programs at Memphis and Houston aren't even close to big enough to ignore the good business reasons to go into Memphis instead of adding another flag to a place where we already have one planted.

This is why a southern approach of UAB and Tulane would be interesting.  Too much of a support reach to bring Tulane along, likely, but for a roadie destination - after hurricane season....

...and it's not one to be taken lightly?

That's very nearly BSFS

I am OK with a stadium that seats 60-65K as long as there are no bench seats! Tired of over weight people taking up two seats but paying for one.

The Pak probably just wants the two programs that will deliver the most viewers. They also have a huge void in ag research that we can fill.

Almond groves on the Konza!!!

LOL - Some of the punctuation in that....woof.

And Baylor - Guess the big 10 "wants" someone to rehab Michigan State's image.

I honestly didn't read all of the opinions, I'm assuming it went: 4 said yes it was FULLY CONSTITUIONAL, 4 said nope, then Kavanaugh was like well who cares it is going away.

And Kavanaugh said he thought it requires legislative action to go beyond July 31.  To me, that's a pretty clear indication that legislative action is required for the moratorium to be extended past July 31.
That isn’t how Supreme Court rulings work. Kavanaugh not anyone else is bound by Kavanaugh saying something in a concurring that he would probably rule differently in the future.

The whole point of this is to buy time for a temporary extension, which it did and then if the Supreme Court says no later, fine deal with what to do then.

Then there should never be a complaint from anyone about a president doing something unconstitutional.  Just let them do it and then see what the Supreme Court says.

Interviewer David Frost has a difficult time with his subject, former President Richard Nixon, in the day’s early questioning (see April 6, 1977). Frost attempts to recoup with a line of questioning suggested by his adviser James Reston, Jr., one used in the trial of former Nixon aide John Ehrlichman (see January 1, 1975). Were there no limits to what a president can do, even if the president wants to do something plainly illegal? he asks. Could he do anything despite the law? Burglary? Forgery? Even murder? “If the president does it, that means it’s not illegal,” Nixon retorts. “Never had his imperialism been so baldly stated,” Reston will later reflect. Frost asks if the dividing line between, for example, a police burglary and the murder of an antiwar protester is only the president’s judgment? Nixon agrees, and adds: “There’s nothing specific that the Constitution contemplates in that respect. I haven’t read every word, every jot and every tittle, but I do know this: That it has been, however, argued that as far as a president is concerned, that in war time, a president does have certain extraordinary powers which would make acts that would otherwise be unlawful, lawful if undertaken for the purpose of preserving the nation and the Constitution, which is essential for the rights we’re all talking about.”

Their EZFZ made me think their stade is connected to Assembly Hall.. Which made me look at the hilarious lines of Assembly Hall... but also, made me realize that now that our SEZ Shamrock FZ connects to Bramlage, I for some reason think lots of other schools FB stadiums connect to their basketball arena/stadium.

But really, how many are there? T-Boone/Iba kinda?

To be sure, though, Assembly does not connect.  But yeah, its seating is redic vertical inside with very little behind the goals.

Yeah, my bad. I meant to say that I found it was not connected and it made me realize I assume lots of facilities are connected.

Some pics of AH are amazing


Yeah, its crazy.  There's still another 5 rows or so in the upper deck beyond what's blocked out by the central roof structure.  Last time I was there, 3 years ago, those wall panels and surface treatments were even dingier than in that photo.  Just really looked "tired" overall.
